The next EuroMillions Superdraw will take place on February 1st. Excitement is growing all around the world as tickets are already available for purchase online. The starting jackpot will be €120 million, and it may grow much larger if nobody matches the winning numbers. The last Superdraw took place in September 2018 and rolled over until a player from Switzerland took home the entire €162 million jackpot.
What Is a EuroMillions Superdraw?
A EuroMillions Superdraw is very similar to the twice-weekly EuroMillions draw with the big difference being the starting guaranteed jackpot. The regular EuroMillions guaranteed jackpot is €15 million.
The upcoming September Superdraw is the first special EuroMillions draw of 2019, while the previous year hosted two such special events. Superdraws can be announced at any time but normally take place to mark anniversaries or special occasions. Superdraws operate according to the same rules as the regular EuroMillions drawings with the only difference being the size of the guaranteed starting jackpot.
The maximum jackpot in a Superdraw is €190 million. Once the jackpot cap has been reached, the jackpot can only rollover once more. After that, the jackpot money will be awarded to the player(s) in the highest prize tier in which at least one ticketholder wins a prize.

Previous EuroMillions SuperDraw Winners
EuroMillions SuperDraws take place 2-3 times a year. Therefore, each year has its share of big EuroMillions jackpot winners. The previous two years had 2 SuperDraws each. The 2018 jackpots went to the UK and Switzerland, making the first Swiss winner of a EuroMillions SuperDraw. In 2017, it was the UK and Spain who scooped the two enormous jackpots. Actually, these two countries are the leaders when it comes to EuroMillions SuperDraws winners. 2016 hosted only one such event, delivering a
€168 million jackpot to Belgium.
Players from Portugal claimed the biggest EuroMillions Superdraw jackpots in 2015. A Portuguese ticket holder matched the five main numbers as well as the two Lucky Stars to win the €100 million jackpot on 6 March. The winner of the drawing held in November won the €163 million jackpot while the winner of the jackpot draw on 6 June was from the UK. The anonymous winner took home a prize of €100 million (£93,388,943).
Three EuroMillions Superdraws were held in 2014 as well. The first one, staged in March, rolled over twice until it reached £107 million. The winner was announced as Neil Trotter from the UK. The second Superdraw of 2014 actually did not take place! It was superseded by the regular EuroMillions drawing which had rolled over until a Spanish ticket player claimed a prize of €137 million in June. The third drawing of 2014 was held in October. Its jackpot rolled over six times until a ticketholder from Portugal claimed the maximum prize of €190 million.
